Employment agencies

There are two basic methods to recruiting someone. You can do it yourself, or you can use an employment agency.

Recruiting without assistance may involve you in writing and placing advertisements, selecting a short list of applicants, undertaking interviews, checking references/qualifications and notifying unsuccessful candidates.

Alternatively, employment agencies can be used, but they may charge a fee depending on the service provided. In Australia, there are two major types of employment agencies. There are those that operate Commonwealth Government contracts — these are called Job Network providers — and those not associated with such contracts.

For your nearest Job Network provider, telephone 13 17 15. (For more details contact www.jobnetwork.gov.au).

Trainees or Apprentices

If your needs are best met by a trainee or apprentice you should contact a New Apprenticeship Centre (NAC). Your NAC will explain what is involved in employing a New Apprentice, and also provide details about proffered Commonwealth and State incentives.

For information about your nearest NAC, telephone 1800 639 629 (or contact www.newapprenticeships.gov.au).
